vulnerability for the president may be the deficit. he promised to cut it in half by the end of his term but it's now topped $1 trillion for four straight years. the "new york times" cbs news poll found in ohio, romney has a slim four-point lead on the deficit. today, the "washington post" fact checkers gave the president four pinocchios for claiming on cbs' "60 minutes" 90% of the boost in deficit came from leftover bush policies. >> we took emergency actions. that accounts for 10% of this increase in the deficit. >> now the economy is front and center one week from tonight at the first presidential debate. two days later the president gets a september jobs report. interesting a moment ago he told the crowd he wants to export more jobs. quickly correcting himself and said he wants to export more products and joked i was channeling my opponent there. bret? >> bret: standing next to carl are you? it looks like carl's backdrop. ed henry -- >> very similar. >> bret: thank you very much. now to the international news. close circuit video of twin bombings at the headquarters in damascus. the first b

to figure out a way to avoid that before the end the year with the deficit reduction plan that deals with the expiring tax cuts and the $1 trillion cuts to defense and domestic programs. a new report out today says this could be a plan developing to help lawmakers move forward on it all. "new york times" reports that colorado democratic senator bennett and tennessee republican senator alexander are representing their parties and would in part set a deficit reduction target of $4 trillion over 10 years. congressional committee would do the work taking six to 12 months figuring out how to achieve that with tax increases and cuts to federal programs. if that fails, part two would then be an automatic deficit reduction structure in effect, likely similar to simpson-bowles. finally, lawmakers are likely under this framework, to vote to put off the tax increases and the automatic spending cuts physical some sometime in 2013. barring some action, here are examples of what would happen in 2013. if your income is $40,000 to $60,000, your taxes go up $2,000 next year. if you are in the top 20
to saudi arabia to buy oil. that's what's added $4 trillion to our deficit. i mean, think about that. so we've created a mountain of debt for the next generation that they're going to have to pay off. >> sean: remember, under obama's watch household income has plummeted more than 8%, and he's added more debt than almost all of his predecessors combined. the president doesn't want to talk about his record because it's a record of failure. he's been disengaged from the moment he took office. not only is he not willing to meet with world leaders bike prime minister benjamin netanyahu, not willing to reach across the isle about serious matters. massive cuts and our defense are looming. the massive tax hike in history is imminent. mr. president, the solutions to those problems won't be reached by sitting on the couch of the "the view," nor found in jay-z's nightclub, nor in george clooney house. the author of a brand-new "new york times" bestseller is here. bob woodward. you said this is a moment of maximum peril. you described a president not engaged in terms of relationships to fix the problem
, trying to do deficit reduction is raising taxes and not doing the cutting on the other end. why don't we try a different approach? why don't we try an approach and cut stuff and then maybe raise, at thats later? >> we can't cut. we can't cut. we can't cut. >> then we're might as well as go down in flames if we can't cut. >> raise taxes. >> neil: charles, one of the interesting things this week, the 47% romney thing and i go back and forth no matter who's nose got out of joint as a result of the comments picked up at a fundraiser. the 47% should stagger you, how we get 47% don't pay taxes. i take nothing away from those on social security, retirement. for whatever reason we're close to paying no federal income taxes today and yet, the only way to correct this, and i think that ben is it an earnest guy and earnestly reading the map of the land is well, we're going to have to hike taxes on the well-to-do or do something like that because the spending cuts and-- so here we go on this group that we always hit up despite the fact that half aren't getting in at all. >> the spending cuts will ne
went up 60 percent. >> i came in office. i inner hadited the biggest deficit in our history. the last four years it went up and 90 percent is consequence of two wars that were not paid for and tax cut that is were not paid for . prescription drug plan not paid for and worst economic crisis since the great depression. that accounts for 10 percent of the increase in the deficit. >> brian: front page of the new york times. stuart rather thaney it is over one trillion. every budget when they do the math he is over budget by a trillion dollars. >> gretchen: he said 10 percent. wars and the horrible recession he was begin that only accounts for 10 percent. >> yes. >> gretchen: what about the other 90 percent? >> steve: george bushes fault? >> gretchen: i am anding a question. >> you are exposing the attitude of the establishment media to all of president obama and his economic record. break it down. the president said i am only 10 percent responsible for a massive accumulation of debt. he is a big spender, a very big spender and that's the principle reason why we have a massive deficit of t
that governor romney has the advantage when it comes to the issue of the debt and the deficit. wendell is live at white house this afternoon. wendell, how big is governor romney's lead on the deficit issue? >>guest: four points. a new poll, after four years of trillion dollar deficits, that may not be ohio voters' most important economic concern given they prefer president obama as governor romney as the candidate who does a better job on the economy. a spokesman said "as time progresses the field is looking like it is narrowing for them. in that sense we would rather be us than them." romney officials accuse the obama camp of spiking the ball on the 30-yard line. press secretary carney said the real question is, what would the replacement refs do if someone spiked the ball on the 30. >>shepard: that is an interesting point. chinese trade practices on the campaign trade today was a talker. >>guest: rather than the auto bailout which is usually the subject in ohio, mitt romney says that china's cheating costs jobs. he promised to crackdown on subsidies and currency manipulation. the president h
he cut the deficit in half in his first term. he's not been asked the simple basic questions by anybody. how did we get to -- >> except by univision. >> sean: one example. >> they haven't even hit him on the outright lie about libya. another anticipated obama argument, this crisis was caused by two wars and push tax cuts. that's so easily refuted. 2007, $161 billion deficit with two wars raging and bush tax cuts implemented in 2003. what romney really needs to do, though, is stress the urgency. none of this john mccain, obama will make a fine president. no. if obama is re-elected, this country is over as we know it. >> yeah. >> he needs to stay that in no uncertain terms. i say this, not because i'm a partisan, i'm scared to death of our lifetime earnings being in jeopardied, i'm scared to death of our liberty, of our prosperity. the american dream is gone. he doesn't believe in opportunity. he believes in expanding the welfare state and the dependence cycle. he believes in expanding obama phones and not putting people back to work and giving people human dignity. >> right. >
. you bringg in 87 billion dollars. with a deficit of a trillion plus, you still have a 900 billion dollarr deficit and if you have a trillion dollar deficit. it brings in 8divide million from the rich and you still have 913 billion of red ink . and you can crazy and trash the millionaires and take every red cent they earn . every millionaire will have the entire income confiscated. you trash the institution and confiscate the red cent and you bring in 839 billion. >> steve: you are way short. >> brian: we are short a trillion every year. >> you don't have a taxing problem. this is a spending problem. it is solved by reducing spend reforming entitlements over the long term. taxing the rich will make barely any difference . it is a political slogan. >> steve: right now the president wants to get reelected so he has the key to air force one. >> he thinks that if you tax the rich that brings in votes. >> steve: we are talking about increasing the taxes on the rich. what people forget about. taxes for everyone are scheduled to go up next year. >> yes, they will. >> steve: everybody is g

for ten weeks' time. you can say you need to tax millionaires more but it won't do anything to the deficit unless you attack the real issue: spending. >> bob: they are not going to do the bush tax cut. there is something working on capitol hill, sequestration two. they will punt it down to the next congress. it guarantee you. >> kimberly: reaction to that? >> dana: well, last night, as i was taking care of jasper, of course, i see that president obama is going to be on "60 minutes." i thought it was a repeat. he has been on "60 minutes" more than steve cross has been on it. ten times, watered down the prime opportunity in the p.r. and the brand of "60 minutes." in addition, "60 minutes" said they did this interview with president obama on september # 2. it's very unusual they would not demand at least an opportunity to go back to president obama because so much happened between the 12 and the 21 that obama didn't have to answer for that romney did when he did an interview on the 21st. >> kimberly: let's take a listen to romney on "6 of 0 minutes." >> the current rate less 20%. the top rate

, it's eating up time on the calendar if it had not happen we would be talking about economy, deficits, jobs and affordable care act. if mitt romney is going to use this successfully he needs not only to make this critique and point out this is broader frame as seeing the president disengaged not up to the job, giving it his best and failing on behalf of the american people and relate that to the dough messtic economy as well. bill: when the debate number one is rather is week from today. carl, thank you. karl rove in washington on that. here is martha. martha: there are violent protests breaking out about big government spending cuts. look at these scenes. why thousands of people are taking to the streets in spain and what it could mean for your wallet here at home. we'll be right back.

is telling france hey, you got to get that budget deficit under control, big budget deficit is verboten the socialist president of france, francois hollande, tax the rich, not so rich, capital gains, profits, you name it, there will be a big new tax. on upper end of income every dollar over a certain level the french government will take 75 cents. rip it right out of your hand. 75 cents on the dollar. more than $200,000, they take 45 cents on the dollar, almost half. bill, this is a massive gamble because france's economy is dead flat, teetering on recession. 10-year high for unemployment and france puts in place huge tax increases. bill: i'm reading the two measures bringing around half a billion euros. >> that's it. >> what will that do for them? >> not much. there are other taxes as well which will bring in a total they think of 20 billion euros. bill: higher tax rates on dividends? >> dividends, capital gains, dividends, profits, reinvestment of capital, interest you name it. bill: here is a query for you. are they cutting spending at all? >> by about $10 billion euros. $20 billion
. the tough measure is meant to help bring france's deficit. let's go to clayton. >> big story making headlines this morning. several days after the attack on the u.s. consulate. this is the story that the obama administration was sticking to. listen. >> this was not a preplanned premeditated attack that what happened initially was it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo as a consequence of the video. >> our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction. >> what our assessment is as of the president is in fact what it began spontaneously in benghazi as a reaction to what had transpired some hours earlier in cairo. >> but as fox news reports, the administration knew within the first 24 hours that it was a terrorist attack. so why were americans left in the dark and how could potential coverup impact the election? here for fair and balanced debate is fox news contributor angela mcglowan and mclavigne. this seems like a big problem for the president. >> i don't see it that way. look, the president came out t
, they ought to be embarrassed. mr. president, you promised to cut the deficit in half in your first term, $6 trillion in debt, you said bush was unpatriotic and irresponsible for four years. explain. they don't ask fundamentals. fewer americans are working in spite of your caveats, mr. president. explain. explain all of the -- never does he get asked simple questions. >> well, the media complicit here and the collusion, which is what it is, is obvious. when univision does -- credit to them -- for asking tougher questions, never getting an answer, but asking tougher questions of this president, that's amazing. i mean, they've abrogated their responsibilities as media and the american people, what we hear in this howard stern audio, is the result -- it's partially the result of media collusion. >> bill: the reason democrats' playbook is always divide along class, rich versus poor, old versus young, the race card is always played, it's for a reason, that people hear these little bumper stickers and platitudes, so there's a certain amount of this works. >> look, the left can't win man-to-man. wh
pledged to cut the budget deficit in half by the end of his first term. obviously with the budget deficit still at 1.2 trillion that hasn't happened. how does he get past that at the debates? >> as he said, central to his entirely election argument is things were much worse than we thought they were. the country was in a much-worse situation and the americans who lived through the panic of 2008 tend to agree with him, they tend to easily recall what it was like when they opened their 401k statements before this election in 2008 and said, gee, this is not working. the president does have that going in his favor. the thing that makes him more vulnerable is this. this is where romney can really get him. the president said if he got the more than trillion dollars in stimulus packages that he wanted that he could get unemployment down under 8%, and that is not what happened. so what romney will argue is, that the president has failed and that the failures have been simply too expensive. and you know the new sewing began in romney land and that is this. we can't afford four more years. you're g
not paying federal income taxes little decision has been given about debt and deficits of 58 million americans collecting more benefits than they pay in taxes. >> it disconnecting people of the cost of government and they will have a much bigger appetite for government spending as more and more americans don't pay taxes there's less resistance to programs that take money from everybody else. >> close to half don't pay federal income taxes some are retired elderly collecting social security and medicare the study excluded them. even without them the number of nontaxpayers risen from 21 percent in 1990 42 percent toda. government spending has grown to pace. >> the gobbling of the nonpayer rate associated with more than 200 billion about 213 billion in entitlement spending today. it is a big chunk of change a big part of the federal budget. >> 213 billion a year over 20-years the study found the number of nonpayers has increased the debt to gdp ratio by 14 points. those who don't pay federal income taxes pay other taxes. he and both parties expanded tax breaks for the working poor. >> w
moderate. emphasizing the debt and the deficit is very important for a candidate to appeal to independents. mitt romney during the presidential primary here that he won convincingly eve emphasized that a great deal and i think that helped him with indianas. we are without a sales tax and income tax. people understand here that financial decisions have consequences. i can recall in 2000 when john mccain talked about the debt and the deficit the bush campaign at the time said what is he talking about? john mccain beat george bush here by 20 minutes in that prime rare re. bush retooled his message and barely won new hampshire by talking about the debt and the deficit. gregg: kevin in 2010 the last election there, if i understand it, if i recall correctly i think republicans won almost every office, but that doesn't mean it's going to happen that way this year, the pendulum could begin to swing in the other direction? >> that's correct. we had the largest republican sweep for a legislature of any state in the country in 2010. four years earlier in 2006 the democrats took control of the legisla

budgett deficits. >> right. >> why wouldn't this help the state's bottom line? this is happening in arizona, where property taxes are next to nothing anymore, because there's no housing market anymore. why wouldn't this be a good thing? >> it is a good thing. i haven't heard one single good argument why not to do this. you're not rushing kids through, you're allowing them to rush through if they so desire. that's what this is supposed to be about. kids that can advance should advance if they want to. if it saves money all the better. why not save money if you can if it's improving the lots of kids that want to achieve. we should reward achievement in this country. this is a good way to start. >> nobody is saying you shouldn't do that, jim. >> todd? >> jim, that's great. nobody is saying we want to destroy success. we get that. however, you have to assume with property taxes, you saw a population growth. to think property taxes would actually drop because you subtract two years from a high school education -- >> i agree with you. they're not going to drop. >> that's not -- hold on
predecessor. the david letterman interview that president obama gave last week on the debt and deficits was a veritable panoply of things that were at least misleading, and often just flat-out untrue. i think the president didn't get called on it. there were many more misleading statements in the 10 minute interview that president obama gave david letterman than anything in paul ryan's speech which as we saw led to the this explosion of fact-checking. bill: don't all politicians kind of take the truth and bend it a little bit, stretch it out for their own advantage? >> yes. that is an understatement. they do it all the time. everybody on all sides does it. and i think, you know, to a certain extent the romney campaign has to be a little careful not caught up in just being fact checkers, but at the same time calling the president out on his excesses. when he is say things about governor romney that aren't true. bill: rove takes it a step further because he writes about serial dishonesty. that is the phrase he uses in his piece. how do you think romney has responded to date? >> i think th
year the take home pay goes down? >> no! >> do we want four more years of trillion dollar deficits? >> no! >> yeah, i don't believe we can afford four more years like the last four years. the people of ohio are going to say loud and clear on november 6th we can't afford four more years, we must do better. [cheers and applause] megyn: well, one of the political writers focused on the romney change today is chris stirewalt, fox news digital politics editor. chris, there is a shift in the romney approach. describe exactly what we're seeing. >> well, what you're seeing is a campaign that had previously been trying to have a campaign that was structured around the idea that barack obama was a nice guy, a good fellow, a good dad and an all-around swell american but that mitt romney thought that he could probably do a better job being president and manager of the economy than he could because they were very worried about not only fending voters had voted for obama in 2008. they didn't want to sound like romney was being a jerk, but they were worried, too, pretty obviously, about what the
lots of money. in fact, we didn't have even have a deficit. >> ill. >> bill: bill then when when we ran into trouble president bush lowered the cap gains and then we got out of trouble because more money came in. and led to the highest amount of federal tax revenue in history, juan. >> did we get out of trouble? >> bill: no, no. no. because we had the wars and we had the war on terror and all of that. but the facts are the facts. highest amount of tax revenue ever flowing into washington came under president bush when he lowered the capital gains tax. now, mary katharine, am i misguided here? am i misstating something here? >> no. i think you are right. i mean, barack obama is proposing through and he has through the buffet deal before that we should basically jack up the capital gains tax which would discourage investment. >> bill: you are disagreeing with juan. >> and furthermore barack obama was asked about this in a debate with hillary clinton in 2008 where the moderator said it has been shown tax revenue goes up when the capital gains rate is lower. isn't that something you would b

for decades had a 10, $50 billion deficit because we just spent too much money. >> steve: as big as the deficit is in california, it doesn't even approach what we're heading toward here in the united states of america. >> that is really tough because when you talk about $16 trillion, i mean, this is the last few years come from ten to $16 trillion. that is troubling. then on top of it, you have the deficit, which is like a trillion and a half every year. i mean, we are talking about a lot of money, and on top of it, this country doesn't have a budget for three years, we've been waiting for a budget. there is no budget. how do you operate that way? >> brian: that's a failure for the president, don't you agree? >> everyone in washington it's a failure. if congress cannot get their act together and look at this, if you can not get immigration reform done which they have been talking about ever since i've gotten into office, they've talked about immigration reformment nothing gets done. every year they say, next year is an election coming up. hello? of course there is an election co
